To say that I am a choco-holic is, quite frankly, an understatement. I can, and do, eat chocolate in some form every.single.day. Sometimes twice a day.
Having said that, of course, making single serving desserts has become quite a thing for me lately. Alexander would rather eat ice cream, Sabrina dislikes “too much” chocolate (I swear she’s not related to me..), and J turns into a gremlin if he eats sugar too close to bedtime.
More for me, that’s the way I see it.
The original recipe for this includes placing a dollop of peanut butter in the center of the cake before baking – which, given my undying affection for Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, is a very good idea indeed.

2 tbs. butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 tbs. chocolate chips
In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, and sugar until combined. Whisk in milk, butter and vanilla until smooth. Stir in chocolate chips. Scrape the batter into a microwave-safe ramekin. Microwave on high for 30 seconds. Consume with gusto!
